I only checked www.saabusa.com. I did not notice them under their accessories catalog. I really like the looks and was thinking about getting them for winter wheels.

Are you planning to get the 18-inchers for a winter set? What are you running in the summer then? ;)

Dip,

LOL!

The summer wheels are going to be 19" Speedline Corse 2210sc. If I can swing it with the wife, the center will get powder coated gun metal. Should look sweet on my silver Aero :cheesy:

The wife is on board with winter & summer wheels. It's for saftey 8)

Here is a link to a pic:

I had winter wheels similar to that on my 900, and be forewarned: if you live in snowy regions, the snow likes to pack itself into those wheels and 40mph+ driving will be terrible... it unbalances the wheels quickly and significantly. If you have the patience to brush out the snow from those wheels, maybe that would make a difference.

I have no patience though :) The best solution for me was to use wheels that didn't have big holes and open areas in them.

I second that. Even my standard 16" three spokes pack a lot of snow inside the rim in an average Toronto snowfall, which quickly throws them off balance. And then you get terrible vibrations in a highway.

Thanks for the snow tip. I would have never thought of snow getting packed inside the wheel.

Lucky for me we do not get a lot of snow vs. wet and sometimes icy roads. And that is really only for a few weeks out of the year.
